Hauschild set school records in the 50 freestyle (first place in 23.70) and 100 freestyle (second place in 51.00) at the Mt. San Antonio College Meet of Champions, helping the Royals girls finish as runners-up and the combined boys and girls teams win the overall title.

Wopat blasted 19 kills to power Dos Pueblos to a rare three-set sweep at Santa Barbara, handing the Dons their first loss in Channel League and pulling the Chargers into a tie for first place. Earlier, he recorded 23 kills in a win over Ventura.

An interesting side note to this week's winners, Wopat and Hauschild come from families that have played a big part in the athletic history of the community.

The athletes receiving honorable mention accolades were Jess Liou (Cate girls lacrosse), Mackenzie Brokaw (UCSB water polo), Chance Wright (Carpinteria boys track), Henry Farrell (Laguna Blanca volleyball), Austin Bush (Westmont baseball), Bennett Reichard (San Marcos golf),  Ryan Guardino (San Marcos baseball) and Shane Bieber (UCSB baseball).

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
